    The Good and the Bad

    • Written by Nancy D from Goose Creek

    A week ago I would have given a 5 star review. I love the light weight, sleek appearance, and feel of this silicone case. I am super gentle with my phone. It was placed in the silicone case at the store when I purchased my phone, and remained in the case for over a year with no problems... BUT I never tried to remove the phone from the case. Last week my son inadvertently drenched my phone when he spilled a large glass of water next to it. The display screen immediately developed seeping gray areas that spread rapidly. My first thought was to remove the case in an attempt to dry my phone. It was nearly impossible to remove the case, and broke into pieces when we were finally able to extract my phone. I was shocked the case could not hold up to the phone being removed from it!

    Side note: DO NOT place your phone in a bag of rice to dry it out. I was unable to dry it out by wiping it down and airing it out for three days. Everyone told me to do the rice thing. I did it. The gray areas disappeared overnight and my phone appeared to work well. I attempted to plug it into the charger and it wouldn't fit in the port. A rice kernel had become lodged deep inside, absorbed water, then dried up again. I took it to the store where I purchased it and even they could not dislodge the rice kernel. I was told this is a common occurrence with the 'rice method' and you should never place your phone in rice.

    Good Case

    When I first got this case, it ripped in the first 5 days. Imagine my anger after investing in this pricey case and having it rip almost immediately. However, I brought it back to apple and they exchanged it without any issue. Now I have the new one and I love the feel and fit but am still a little nervous over how quick the first one ripped.

    Almost perfect but

    Lovely looking case (I have the grey and the girlfriend has the blue).

    It's oddly quite slippy to hold which I wasn't expecting and I'm pretty such its the main reason my ApplePay doesn't always work.
    With the case on I have to get the phone very very close to the POS terminal and then move it around........

    I'm not sure if this is any issue with all cases or just this one but it is very annoying!
